sweet and spicy vegetables

what you need (for about 2-3 people):

  • 1 zucchini or 1/2 of a giant one
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 nectarine
  • a thumb-sized piece of ginger
  • a handful of sesame
  • 1 tsp sambal oelek
  • 2-3 tsp honey
  • a little oil

what you do:
  • chop zucchini and bell pepper
  • peel and cut carrot into sticks
  • chop ginger finely
  • start by roasting the sesame
  • then add oil, ginger and sambal oelek and fry that
  • add zucchini, carrots and pepper and fry that as well
  • add in honey, and blend it around
  • leave that and chop nectarine 
  • turn off the heat, add nectarine and stir it in with the hot vegetables
  • I served mine with rice and a little soy sauce
  • depending on how intense you want the sweet-spicy contrast to be, change up the measurements for ginger, sambal oelek and honey; I would say mine could be ranked as middle-intense
